Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Sign On for Dumb and Dumber 2
Lloyd and Harry are back—well, maybe.
The Farrelly brothers have officially announced that production for a sequel to the 1994 cult classic Dumb and Dumber which has been rumored since last October.
Peter Farrelly revealed, “We’re getting to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September. It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back,” to Total Film.
After 2003’s flop of Dumb and Dumberer, the prequel to Dumb and Dumber, Farrelly has stressed the sequel’s authenticity saying, “We did not do Dumb and Dumberer. That was a studio thing. So we’ve always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, ’We’ve got to do this thing again.’ He had just watched Dumb and Dumber and he said, ‘This is the perfect sequel. Let’s do it.’”
While Twitter bombshell of Peter Farrelly’s has created a lot of stir, Entertainment Weekly stated the film is “moving along, but it’s not green lit yet.”
